    Nope. Sulfur bomb. Nope nope nope.
    The very worst part is that there’s a good whisky hiding in here, but it seems it’s been smothered in egg salad. Yecch.

    Nose: Pungent and buttery. Strong peach crumble, cherry pie, strawberry tarts, raspberry lemonade, and fresh-squeezed orange juice. Cookie dough, chocolate cupcakes, toffee, and cheese danishes. Quite sulfurous.

    Palate: Silky texture, quite spicy. Banana cake, rhubarb pie, sugary cereals, and yeast on the arrival. Strong sulfur and lapsang souchong in the middle. Chocolate torte with raspberry sauce.
    Water adds some creamy vanilla, but makes the sulfur even worse.

    Finish: Medium-length. Sulfur, grape skins, sulfur, yuzu, raspberry and cranberry scones, and sulfur. Orange juice mixed with toothpaste.

    The game of sulphur is a dangerous one; many people just view it as a fault. Personally, sulphur in whisky is one of the few places I find it acceptable and I can tolerate quite a bit. However, here my tolerance for sulphur was well and truly exceeded. There is a line in the sand, but this whisky cannot even see the line in the sand - it is out of sand and now into full-on Rotorua off-roading.

      strong sulphur masking whatever else is there. I didn't even think it was that strong a whisky!

    Sulphur, gunpowder, dried friuts. Smells (and tastes) like a newyearsdaymorning in the Netherlands.
    A very special whisky, but not for the faint hearted,
